6. Never Skimp on the Grounds
Always fill the coffeepot with a generous scoop of grounds to produce a high-quality cup of coffee. Use nine to 11 grams, which works out to about two tablespoons full of coffee grounds for every six ounces of water. Yes, that seems like a lot, but the flavor will seem very robust and the smell will be heavenly. After a few sips, you’ll feel awake and ready to embark on the day.
5. Brew at the Right Temperature
You’ll want to brew your coffee at around 195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit to extract the best flavors from the coffee grounds. The heat does matter when it comes to taste and pulling the correct amount of oils from the grounds.
4. Use the Right Filters
You can use a reusable filter or a paper filter. However, a lot of people believe that the white, bleached paper filters alter the flavor of the coffee. Always use the right size to fit in your machine. Discard the used filter and do not reuse the paper ones. You can place the coffee grounds and the paper filter directly in the compost bin to recycle.Related: Reasons to Avoid Drinking Coffee on an Empty Stomach
